Erectile dysfunction is the inability to attain and keep an erection, preventing you from having satisfactory sexual intercourse. That can lead to other damaging effects, including relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, and poor self-esteem.
Erectile dysfunction is, in many cases, a silent marker for cardiovascular disease. So, by treating erectile dysfunction early, you could potentially prevent cardiovascular disease and live a longer and healthier life.
Age is often a contributor to erectile dysfunction. That happens because you produce less and less testosterone (the hormone that plays a huge role in sexual function) as you age — after the age of 30, your total testosterone production decreases steadily by up to 2% each year.
That helps to explain why erectile dysfunction incidence increases by 10% per decade of life. For example, 50% of men over 50 have erectile dysfunction, and that rises to 60% after age 60.
Aside from age, many different lifestyle factors, habits, and health factors can contribute to erectile dysfunction. A few of the different physical contributors can include excess weight, diabetes, sleep disorders, enlarged prostate gland, high cholesterol, and atherosclerosis.
Emotions and mental health can also play a role in erectile dysfunction. Difficulties within the relationship outside the bedroom can also creep into the bedroom to cause erectile difficulties.
There are many different approaches to erectile dysfunction, ranging from psychotherapy to oral medications to surgery like penile implants.
